Everybody (almost) in the world knows what "YouTube" is.
The numbers behind the platform are amazing:
- Every minute 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube.
- According to Nielsen, YouTube reaches more US adults ages 18-34 than any cable network.
- Millions of subscriptions happen each day. The number of people subscribing daily is up more than 3x since last year, and the number of daily subscriptions is up more than 4x since last year.
YouTube is getting huge and many YouTubers are getting very famous too.
However, the reality behind many YouTubers is not so clear as you may think. Big channels (like the one of two guys, whose name starts with "S") are real studios with many people working in it. If you may think that a YouTuber is a normal person in front of a webcam... Well, he's not.
For this reason, I'm really enjoying the new project of a famous italian YouTube named "Doctor Clapis". In this project he explains the complex world behind this massive platform and he tells many things that many don't even imagine.
My suggestion is to take a look to the video below (I know, it's not in english).
[Update]: here's the second episode.
